Can you believe it’s my first time eating Sarawak Kolo Mee? Where do you go for Kolo Mee in Singapore or Kuching even? Being very curious, I joined the short queue at Sarawak Kolo Mee by Jin’s Noodle at Amoy Street Food Centre (02-110). They have opened a couple of outlets including the Kopitiam at Tampines Mall.

Let me tell you what’s inside their Kolo Mee. For $4/5, be treated to a bowl of thin and springy yellow noodles with minced pork, char siew, boiled wanton, fried wanton and cai sim/ choy sum. It’s finished off with an aromatic mixture of fried onion and lard although for some reason there’s a bit of water that’s collected at the bottom of the bowl. Help yourself to the sambal chilli and green chilli. You can opt for spinach noodles too.

There’s a good amount of meat to give you enough protein for the afternoon. It was great that the fried and boiled wantons that’s filled with a good amount of minced pork. And the char siew was meaty and not of the lean and dry variety.

It’s a pretty good bowl of kolo mee although I don’t have a benchmark to compare it against. I found the portions to be reasonably filling but not food coma inducing.
